We conduct a final Quality Inspection once goods are ready and review all documentation. We can also facilitate quality testing as per your requirements from a certified lab at an additional fee. These quality standards need to be provided at the time of placing the order and are recommended for larger orders.
Once products are ready and have been inspected, a trusted logistics partner associated with Qalara ships the products, either by Air or Ocean Freight as decided at the time of placing the order.
